Nobu Hospitality will officially be joining the Chicago hotel boom with its entry in the West Loop, the company announced this afternoon in a press release. Once completed in 2016, the boutique hotel will sport 155 rooms. A key fixture of the hotel will be its restaurant, where Chef Nobu Matsuhisa will serve up Japanese cuisine. Nobu will build its new hotel and restaurant at the corner of Randolph and Peoria and joins several other trendy hotels planned for the West Loop area, including the upcoming Soho Hotel. Nobu currently owns and operates hotels in Las Vegas and Miami Beach, but Chicago will become the home to its next US opening (take that New York).
